That was kinda like shaking your hand, turning to walk away and you feel the crack of the bat on the back of your head

moto's prophecy is revealing itself

altho i can't talk, i can't even ferment a 1.058 oktoberfest....I wanted to pitch at 53F but my chiller wouldn't get there so i racked and placed in in my keezer. well, i then got pretty wasted and by the next morning the wort was 39F. however, i had confused which temp probe was which and thought it was at 47F so I pitched. it's up to 53F now but not doing anything.

a little off topic, ok, far off topic, but for all the Massholes out there, Tonight at Cambridge Common, there will be a Massachusetts Breweries Tap Takeover, with over 25 different brews, all from Massachusetts brewers. Come on down and have some great beer....

If there is ANYONE capable of talking out his a$$ on a forum, it's my boy Cape.

I taught him everything he knows.





Can I get a minute here? I'm gettin' all choked up.

The average between the two fermenters is about 1075 and dropping slowly. Those 'non stressed' yeasts of ours are enjoying a nice leisurely meal. Hurrying though your dinner can give you an upset tummy.

EC118 is only good for about 18% im pretty sure, and if it went from 1.2 to 1.075 its already flirting with its top end- about 16.25. I think its time to break out the good stuff (099) and lots of it, maybe rack off so the lazy stoner yeast doesn't have a bad influence on the new stuff
